Companies across a broad spectrum of industries rely on critical assets to drive their business. Manufacturing companies rely on equipment availability and uptime to keep production lines moving and meet production goals.
Transport companies rely on fleets and containers for timely cargo delivery. Financial services companies depend on computer and networking systems to manage transactions and keep customer data secure. And while the asset types across industries may be varied, there is still a common need for effective management.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can automatically alert supervisors of any attempt to move a tagged item from an authorized area, providing protection against security breaches and asset loss.
RFID also automates inventory counts, providing a complete, accurate snapshot of asset status in a mere fraction of the time it would take to conduct a physical manual inventory.
To track assets with RFID, tags are attached to all assets — from servers, racks, and laptops to office chairs, carts, and kegs. To take inventory, an employee can simply roam the facility with a handheld RFID reader or a mobile RFID reader on a cart — there’s no need to properly identify the asset, and scan each asset one by one. Without the intensive labour, companies can afford to replace the annual audit with weekly or even more frequent inventory counts.
